Quick advice sought.
The fridge is being replaced as I said but they do not have one like ours (side by side without water and ice in door). So I have to decide between a french door model and a side by side with ice and water in the door.
We are not worried about freezer space as we have a chest and upright freezer. So the issue becomes which is better. Here are my concerns.
The french door having a bottom freezer pull out and Soul yanking on it and it not being shut well with her doing that.
The top doors not shutting as tightly, the seal being problematic.
More things to break on the french door model with the catch brackets that are always plastic.
Getting tired of bending down for ice (we use a lot of ice).
The side by side model being less energy efficient.
The water and ice in the door being able to break easily. remember we have no one to come out to fix anything here apparently.
There is some novelty factor to having a french door model but then again I suppose water and ice in the door has that as well. I just want what will be least likely to break and need a repairman at my home.
Any and all advice very welcome!!
UPDATE: The french door model does NOT have an alarm for any of the doors which was one reason I was worried.
